The Little Screens by the American photographer Lee Friedlander

The television screens were housed in motel rooms and other nondescript rooms of anonymous character spread throughout the US during the 1960s. Each screen transmits images of popular culture icons, political figures, or minor celebrities of that time The environments are iconographic ghost-rooms filled with bland furniture-rooms without personality, rooms that could be, and are, anywhere and everywhere.
